3 Money Topics All Newlyweds Should Discuss

Money Topics All Newlyweds Should DiscussIf you are a newlywed…here are 3 money topics you should discuss with your spouse right away…

First, make a commitment to having weekly “money talks” with each other. Be open, honest and willing to discuss all financial matters. And always maintain your cool.

Second, make a plan to pay off your debt as quickly as possible. Instead of blaming each other or worrying about how you are going to pay for your recent wedding. Focus your time and energy on knocking out your debt!

Third, about a common question I get: “Should we combine our checking accounts or keep them separate?”

My recommendation is to go with a joint account and work together. There are very few situations where it would be beneficial to go solo.

Remember, financial issues are the number one cause of divorce, so take your money seriously, and live a happy, financially fit life together.
